    I did not join a protest. I held my own -- I did not close my gym when ordered to do so. And I don't think the police in WF are guilty of racial inequality.

No idea where it came from besides, perhaps, Walmart. The local hospital has monoclonal on stand-by for severe cases, and since we're so fat (not really... just thirty pounds "overweight" from strength training at healthy body compositions) we automagically qualify. We were recommended a lower dose of the vitamin C, D3 and K2 than we've already been taking, and the kiddos and I remain entirely asymptomatic.

    News directly from the frontlines. Sorry it's boring.
    Drive down here, and I'll give you some ivermectin.

    I don't think so either.

    The question David is have you been vaccinated?

    Jovan, agreed, I've been trying to figure out wtf is going on. Maybe it's mass psychosis?

    I will occasionally watch the state media to see what narrative and games they're up to, however...

    I just tried watching Washington Week on PBS knowing I'd likely get very pissed off with the propaganda. I didn't make it 30 seconds into their J6 diatribe before I switched it off and made a nice martini...

    Better now.

    WHY DO SO MANY STILL BUY INTO THE NARRATIVE? - YouTube

    Coach, thank you for this. I'm only 2 minutes into the video, looking forward to the rest of it.

    I spent the whole day at the hospital Wednesday . Tests, specialists, etc. I had a break and went to the oncology pharmacy. I figured I would kill time and get a booster. A new employer requirement due 2022.

    The pharmacist(s) said I was required to get a third dose first and a booster 6 months latter. I said no, I just need a booster. I never heard of a third dose. They said cdc guideline for people with compromised immune system is a third shot and a booster. I responded with the fact that I just had a blood test and it showed a stellar immune system. Actual data.

    This went back and forth. I said I was interested in doing what was required by my employer and/or my MDs, not the CDC. I would wait to see what my Drs would say.

    A few hours latter with many Drs, RNs, staff, all laughing and sympathetic (they never heard of a third dose either) decided they did not know, and that they get ambiguous and contradictory rules handed down all the time. My brain oncologist said she would do the only obvious thing and pass me on to the department head. Ha ha.

    I met with him for my scheduled appointment. When we were wrapping up (btw he did ask how my powerlifting was going) his RN came in and said no resolution on the booster.

    The Dr. said get the third shot. It’s the same juice as the booster but double (I didn’t know that). I will get an antibody test in Jan and we will call it a booster.

    I know what people here think about the vax. I get it. My experience shows the reality from a different point of view.

    The camp that COVID response is dubious, has been vindicated a little.

    An excellent discussion. I wonder if the many social indoctrinations we live amongst contribute to the group think or mass hypnosis.

    Things, like religion, politics, social division, etc, which I have never bought into for some reason.

    Maybe they pave the way for the anxieties the masses so desperately need to assign to some noble cause?

    So in that sense, I've always thought I was the odd one out.

    I'd rather focus on something else he said at 30:28: "Anyone who puts himself in charge of the masses better be prepared to be killed by them."
